Relocation

Data Center Relocation Image of Prop Airplane

Data Center Relocations move infrastructure from the selected (current) location to a new target or destination location. It only involves two (2) data centers. The receiving data center (target) and the sending data center (origination site).  

The Challenge

You've outgrown your current data center:

  • The power grid is less than desirable, including backup systems.
  • The cooling capabilities are limited.
  • There is no space for expansion.
  • Security isn't sufficient.
  • Redundancy levels are inadequate.

The challenge isn't deciding to move; it's deciding how to move. 

The Solution

Moving a data center is a necessary but potentially risky operation, and most organizations lack the in-house expertise to successfully complete the relocation.  

Once your new facility is located and the design and engineering specs are in process, consider hedging your risk factors with the data center move.  Seek assistance with:

  • Data Center Discovery
  • Data Center Planning
  • Implementation Services
  • Data Center Support
